    I have a MacPro with 5gb ram ( 2X512mb + 1x 1GB) and using the latest build of Parallels 1940 and the latest Parallels Tools.
    I have the same problem as previous builds were only 1.5gb f ram is available for any guests operating system.
    wasn't this built meant to fix this problem? I'm I missing something?

    The weird thing is that in preference under the memory settings i can assign the reserved memory limit up to 4392mb, however in the VM settings I can only assign 1500 mb and worse only use about 1100 since if i set it to 1500 it won't even boot the vm telling me that i do not have sufficient ram avaialble :confused:

    btw running xp sp2 in VM.....

    Cheers
